## Modern Higher AlgebraAbraham Adrian Albert (1905-72) was an American mathematician primarily known for his groundbreaking work on algebra. In this book, which was originally published in 1938, Albert provides a detailed exposition of 'modern abstract algebra', taking into account numerous discoveries in the field during the preceding ten years. A glossary is included. This is a highly informative book that will be of value to anyone with an interest in the development of algebra and the history of mathematics. |
